Buffon, Barzagli renew contracts with Juventus

Gianluigi Buffon and Andrea Barzagli have renewed their contract with Juventus until 2018, the Italian champions said Wednesday.


The goalkeeper captain Buffon, 38, and the 35-year-old defender Barzagli have helped Juve win their last five successive league titles.


Both were in the Italian national squad that won the 2006 World Cup, Barzagli then being a reserve, and are set to man the Azzurri’s defence at Euro 2016 in France.

Barzagli has been at Juve since 2011 after transferring in mid-season from German club Wolfsburg, where he won the Bundesliga in 2009. He had earlier stints in the Serie A at Chievo and Palermo.

Buffon has won seven titles with Juve since his arrival from Parma in 2001.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri also renewed his contract until 2018 last week.
